A Year Of Cats Pattern

A new pattern with all the cute cats from my 2022 calendar design is now available in my print-on-demand stores.

Throw blanket available from Redbubble, Society6 & Zazzle

The 12 cats work well as a pattern, thanks to the soft pastel colours. It’s perfect for any cat lovers and works for all seasons. Who doesn’t want to snuggle up with a fleecy blanket of cats?

The pattern is now available at Redbubble, Society6 (scroll down for all products), TeePublic & Zazzle on all the usual fun products – apparel, stationery, art, phone cases, bags, homeware, kitchenware, bedding and lots more. I’ve also added it to my Spoonflower store, along with a white background version, but I’ll need to swatch them before they’re available to buy.

Here’s today’s offers – please check delivery times if ordering for Christmas!
